    How long are those rods with the spinners? If the good spinners were even close to the same price of a high end conventional I would consider buying one to try out.

    Keep killing them Glenn! I enjoy the reports.

    I’ve been thinking of buying one also for chunking/small jigs.… Ali can call me a JOTO that’s ok.

    Thanks for the pics and report...

    My jigging rods are either 5' or 5'2" tall. My popping outfits are around 8'

    For the record, I'm a spinning/popping fool.

    When we go to PV I chuck that fucker until my arms fall off.

    Popper fishing and Kite fishing are the two most exciting types of fishing in my opinion.

    Yes - I own spinning gear. :D

    Senior joto -

    Joe has bought two Ocean Revolution Black Devil 100 to go with the Stellas.
    Get to the bow, warm up the rotator cuff and start chucking.

    I will lock the salon door and access to the AC when you faint from sunstroke :rofl:

    The spinning reels have been a long time coming here. I am happy to see them finally getting the credit that they have long deserved.

    "Coffee grinders"...say what?

    Great report!

    Spinners are so under rated here in Kalifornia.

    Stay tuned on an intro to jigging and an intro to popping comming soon here on bloody decks

    For popping I use a Shimano Stella 18000 becuase of teh higher gear neccisary for casting lures

    For jigging I use a shimano stella 20000 for th lower gear which helps you rip the jig through the water with less stress on you

    HOW do you beat such large fish in such short time on spinners? What is the advantage over conventional, drag pressure?

    That's it. I'm going there for a couple weeks next summer. What is the best time of the year for popping/casting for these beasts?
